We at Oz Stair Pty Ltd are doing our part to address the problem of climate change by lowering our carbon footprint. We are committed to protecting and restoring the health, diversity and productivity of our unique landscapes.
OzStair sources a range of timbers from Blacktown Timber who are committed to sourcing and supplying only those timbers meeting the strict policies of sustainable forest management. In adhering to this commitment, we support the principles of the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) and the criteria of the Australian Forest Certification Scheme (AFS). This ensures the forests from where we source our timber are guaranteed for the long-term, providing a renewable resource whilst simultaneously protecting and managing the environment.
Blacktown Timber has been awarded the prestigious Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) Chain of Custody certification for the sustainable procurement and production of forestry products. Recognised under the Australian Forestry Standard (AFS), Blacktown Timber meets the requirements of certification via the Programme for the Endorsement of Forest Certification (PEFC), a clear demonstration of our commitment to source product from only sustainably managed forests.
Ozstair is continually making the effort to decrease our impact on our native ecosystems.
OzStair has planted trees with the aim of protecting and restoring rainforests in Australia. Through Rainforest Rescue we are playing our part in re-establishing rainforests through planting, maintenance and restoration programs, as well as purchasing and protecting high conservation value rainforest and preserving its biodiversity.
Rainforests contain more species of plants and animals than any other ecosystem in Australia. Sadly 75% of our rainforest have been cleared for agriculture and development.
Planting rainforest trees will help to restore these rainforests and protect the many threatened species of plants and animals that live there.
